These mountains are old. The drawing of these three took years in the making... from the Deep South, from the Mid-West and from New England they came forth. Cultivated from years of toil, pleasure, strife and with a tenacious snarl... Musketoon formed in a haze of modern life on an ancient mountain. Our music is as simple and complicated as we are... an expressively powerful rhythm section well grounded by chaos and lightning-struck by guitar. Years in the making... and many styles make the mongrel... Musketoon is a rock band with a punk attitude, salted with swampy bluesy, funky, goth-reggae psychobilly tinged flavors.
Musketoon will play you some of our own... and then we'll play you some of our favorites. We are proud to be Asheville, North Carolina's most prolific & unacclaimed trio.
Following is a continually growing list of the bands that Musketoon covers songs by:
Bauhaus, Cake, CCR, The Clash, Gang of Four, Grateful Dead, Iggy Pop, Joy Division, Led Zeppelin, Meat Puppets, Minutemen, Morphine, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Nirvana, Primus, Reverend Horton Heat, The Stooges, Talking Heads, Ween, The Who & Velvet Underground
